Bedwinds but fierce!

The digital way of life for travellers is a growing trend welcomed by most of the world's industries and companies. So that you don't think the way of life of these people is easy, you need to know that they work hard to secure a living, it's not like the previous traditional work in offices from 9am to 5pm, if these women often work much longer, especially in urgent requests from customers or companies that employ them.

Marta R. A Girl Who Travels suggests that those interested in joining "digital Bedouins" and securing a job before starting their journey "Start your connections both online and offline to secure a job that suits your qualifications and abilities."

For her part, travel blogger Katie Dedericz said, "If you want to start your journey as a digital commuter soon, and you don't have time to learn a new career, start freelancing so you know what you really want. Self-employment is great and can help you test remote job opportunities that suit your qualifications without making a huge or sudden leap in your life "according to ZD Net, which met a number of" Bedouins "to explore their lifestyle and tell their stories.

Bilegrath and the Search for Freedom

Caroline Bellegrath, Digital Bedouin, Tour Writer, Marketing Expert and Founder of Pruthing Travel & Pruthing Retreat (Breathing Travel and Breathing Retreats) has travelled the world since 2014, describing sitting in her apartment in Frankfurt, Germany, before deciding to go digital nomadic after realizing that life outside the routine is nicer "I never hated my job, what I didn't like was the lifestyle of waking up in the early morning before the sunrise, coming home from work in the dark, which meant I wasn't watching the day most of the time, and then there's winter and the freezing cold which is something I didn't like at all."

When asked what it means to be digital nomadic, Caroline replied, "Absolute freedom, waking up whenever I want and working whenever I want, taking time off whenever I want, swimming in the ocean and heading to this or that country when I want, not when I'm allowed to go. All life should not be about work and building someone else's dream, I want to build my dreams for myself and myself ".

Serpel and running away from home with her husband

Jayme, co-founder of Gnomad Home, described her story in an influential way. "My husband worked 3 jobs together to secure a decent level of life, and we could buy a house for us, and my husband filled it with many things we didn't need for most of them."

They bought a 1996 Chevy Express 1500 model, which they called "Gnomie" and renovated it completely, then left the big house, starting their way and leaving behind most of their belongings. Jayme described her journey so far as something "new about who we are and who we want to be."

Jenny Lachs... Scientist-turned-Bedouin

With an academic background as a chemist, Dr. Jenny Lax started her project "Digital Nomad Girls" as a Facebook group to ask questions and listen to other women's experiences of traveling as digital backpackers. Since then, the page has flourished and grown in the world's online digital bedouin community.

Jenny said her decision to become nomadic came from her desire to travel and travel often. Initially, she chose any of the entrepreneurship she could find, from writing to managing media to translating into German, and now successfully runs her company Digital Nomad Girls offering a thriving community, a different experience for those living as Bedouins or wishing to become so.

Katie Dederich and Nahan are walking around.

Originally from Minnesota in the United States, her 3-year journey to travel and live abroad included teaching English in South Korea. When she started running out of money, she didn't say she wanted to travel as she started working remotely online nearly 4 years ago. As a tour writer and blogger, I started "Two Wandering Soles" with her husband.

"Being digital nomads gave me the freedom to build a lifestyle that I love, a work schedule for whatever I want, and I can travel and live in whatever country I want because my office is my mobile device," Dederich said of her experience. (Laptop) But this freedom also has a price, where I sometimes work very long hours, my mind rarely stops working or thinking about work, and I make my effort to maintain a work-life balance, something that needs to be done more than me. "
